Edge5 permaculture

Edge5 is an experienced Australian environmental consultancy that has the practical knowledge, teaching skills and collaborative ability required to transform local communities.

At the core of Edge5’s environmental philosophy is permaculture. This is an integrated design approach that brings together ecological processes and human activities to establish healthy, sustainable communities.

Our work is rooted in delivering real benefits to communities in terms of landscape improvement and overall quality of life.

The results of Edge5’s permaculture programs speak for themselves:

what is permaculture?

Permaculture is an integrated design system that combines the ecological processes of land, plants, animals and climate into highly functional and productive systems that lead to strong, healthy, stable communities.

Edge5’s 5 key focus areas of permaculture action:

  • Food security – The foundation of stable communities through nutritious kitchen gardens
  • Water & Earthworks – Water conservation and quality
  • Education – Training Programs to develop self-reliance.
  • Shelter – Safe, healthy and resource-responsible
  • Livelihood – Resilience

Edge5 training programs

In the same way as we approach permaculture design, Edge5’s training courses are developed specifically for the communities where we operate.

Our courses are designed not only to teach participants basic skills but to train them to take this knowledge to others. Embedded in our approach to community training is developing an ongoing mentoring and support relationship, while at the same time seeding local networks so entire regions can develop resilience together.

Edge5 recognises the critical role that women play in developing the resilience of communities.

SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS COMPLIANCE

An illustration of how permaculture is result-based can be seen in the context of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. The 17 SDGs cover social and economic development issues including poverty, hunger, health, education, climate change, gender equality, water, sanitation, energy, urbanization, environment and social justice. As a integrated system-based discipline, permaculture has the potential to positively influence each on of these goals.
